in their battle against president obama's health care law, and are they beginning to run out of ammunition? joining me live now, senior political editor mark murray, it was one of the first reads that noted that part of the strategy problem for republicans regarding focusing heavily on the website was if it was repaired or if things start to run a bit more smoothly, where would they go here? we're seeing that strategy at least from speaker boehner's team saying that they plan to highlight what they still fear are low points regarding coverage for people. >> tamron, one of the biggest developments in the health care debate that everyone is running in place. resuscitate a lot of argument wez saw in 2010 or 2012, senate democrats talking about how republicans want to privatize medicare and they are responding back that democrats ended up voting for medicare cuts in the health care law and relitigating things we had in 2010 and 2012. you are right, there was this big fear among republicans that once the website was fixed that all of a sudden the issue would perhaps go away and everyone would d

put forward, if they're saying we need to end obama care, they're going to be taking away health insurance from people who have had it for a while. and that itself can be a powerful counterattack. but interestingly enough, it's not just democratic government who's embracing this, it's a handful of republican governors as well. and i think that that is a really revealing sort of point. governor kasich of ohio said the reason we're doing the medicaid expansion is it's a human issue, it's a moral issue that these people need to be covered. and i feel like those voices are going to begin to get more attention as well. >> so, susan, suzy is not wrong on this point, one of the things that republicans are right about when they have angst about the government, that once it is implemented, it is hard to go take it away. so this point that once people have the obama care, talking about repealing it or taking it back becomes a very different issue than having never implemented it. does that mean it's sort of the end of that repeal discussion going forward? >> well, the repeal portion, yes.

-end problems that they experience but the back-end problems. it's supposed to deliver health insurance on the back end. that enmoos submit applications to insurance companies, submit payments ultimately to insurance companies. but in the end, the website, healthcare.gov is a minimum threshold that obama care must meet. it is a hurdle that must get cleared in order to satisfy what the government expects will be some demand for the product, for the products offered on the exchange. and that is a far more serious problem. is there a demand? will young healthy people opt into the system? because what you're talking about now are strauk ral problems, not technical problems. they are the term, a potential death spiral of this whole application. >> you heard what will said. and there's also this problem, that is perception. because the rollout is such a disaster. and even if they're coming out say, u. wow, it's great, now young people come sign up now. will they believe it? >> that's an important question. if you don't have enough young people sign up, the market won't work as it should. firs

of why the land of adult children is happening. for example, you have president obama going out and saying k stay on their parents' health insurance until they're 26. last time i checked, we weren't exactly kids or children at the age of 26. many people are homeowners. world war ii was won by people ages 18 to 26. by the time you're 18 you can sign up to fight overseas. by 21 you can drink alcohol. yet all of a sudden we're children able to stay on our parents' health insurance. that is not a good thing. that means we're delaying adulthood and overall a whole generation is now saying i don't know how much things cost. they're not responsible for their actions. >> there are so many young people who are the heart and soul of america doing incredible things in service to this country, in business, in industry, working every day, day in and day out. what is the net effect as we go out this morning of this interest by this administration in making children out of young men and young women? what is the net effect 20 years from now? >> as you mentioned, there are a lot of very young pe

proper health care, i'm offended. but you cannot bankrupt the entire nation on some ideological quest for income equality. in a capitalistic system, that's impossible. a "wall street journal" editorial yesterday was blunt -- "mr. obama returned to his favorite theme of rising income inequality. he ought to know since few presidents have done more to increase inequality than he has. median household income has fallen since the economic recovery began, while the rich who own capital assets have done very well." now, two things. first, the reason there is such a wide gap between the rich and the poor in america is technology. we're living in a time where people who have tech skills will make money, and people who have few skills will struggle. and the president's nanny state mentality's not going to change that. second, american children must master skills in school. but president obama has done very little to reform the teachers unions to encourage discipline in the public schools and to be blunt about why some kids fail. the primary reason children do not learn is that their parents ar
